A call to repentance challenges the status quo. It calls on people to pause and evaluate where things are and where they’d want them to be.
In an environment consumed with money, we have not been baptized into an economy. In a culture absorbed by political identity, we have not been baptized into a political party. In a world that has been threatened at times by radicalized nationalism, we have not been baptized as Americans.
Our faith cannot disappear with the Christmas ornaments and decorations.
Today, we honor the Wise Men who followed a star.
This Christmas, we can choose to stay unhappy and miserable because of life’s disappointments and uncertainties. But we do have another choice.
This gift of peace is not a dream, removed idealism, escapism, or wishful thinking. The peace of God, which is beyond all understanding, is more real and tangible than anything else in this world.
